Elephant Animals
Contest Directions: Mammoth No. 59 was discovered at The Mammoth Site of Hot Springs today. This discovery pushes the number of mammoths discovered at Hot Springs to 59 56 Columbian and three Woolly. The woolly mammoth was an elephantid species and most closely related to today's Asian elephants. Even though mammoths originally lived in a more tropical climate, they migrated to the Arctic where the adopted to colder climate. Scientists have long been trying to recreate mammoths from the DNA of the frozen mammoths found in the permafrost of the Arctic. The concept is complex and involves genetic engineering and surrogate mother-ship - implanting the woolly mammoth's DNA into an egg cell of the female elephant and then planting the egg into the female elephant's womb where it should develop into an embryo. So far no such attempts have been successful, but scientists are now one step closer to recreating woolly mammoth's blood from the DNA.
Would the chances of bringing the woolly mammoth back to life be higher if we put the mammoth's DNA into the womb of some other animal species? Show us what cross-species between mammoths (or elephants) and other animals would look like. Since elephants and mammoths are very close relatives, we'll accept entries using elephants "as mammoths".
